Of course you are right. Nobody would find interesting or unusual things in my
movement data alone. But this is part of another western value - individualism.

I feel the right to decide, if I give the data by free will - that's all.

Personally I'ld like to know, why is there so much surveillance in London. Is it
because of the terrorist attacks of 2005/2017? Even then it seems to me unusual
for a western country.
